Our quest for sustainability, uncompromised quality, and total customer satisfaction is more than just a promise; it's a tangible reality that we perpetuate on a daily basis. Today, NAQUA prides on:
At NAQUA, we adopt a strategic approach to biosecurity. The latter helps us define our aquaculture production framework and enables us to sustain a predictable and profitable business.
Our biosecurity relies on the following pillar components:
- Upkeeping our broodstock's optimal health status
To ensure our broodstock's best health conditions until preserved in ponds and cages, we maintain strict exclusion strategies and stimulate general immune parameters prior to their release to the farms. As a result, our shrimp postlarvae and juvenile fish are Specific Pathogen Free (SPF) and Specific Pathogen Tolerant (SPT).
- Adopting a rigorous surveillance program
We use wet mount, PCR and histology to validate our stocks' health condition and detect possible diseases at an early stage.Our surveillance program is run by a state-of-the-art diagnostic laboratory and highly qualified staff members who are available around the clock to support production teams.
NAQUA's biosecurity plans are specific to the facility, culture stage and species. They are regularly updated to minimize any risk of infection in case of new emerging pathogens.
At NAQUA, we are constantly innovating to perfect our products. Whether by adopting state-of-the-art technologies, conducting ongoing studies and research, or developing new product specimen for testing and commercialization, we are passionate about bringing our industry to new heights and exceeding our markets' expectations.
- We've conducted shrimp and fish feed trials to improve their composition while opting for organic ingredients that result in effective and functional feeds
- We run a breeding program in parallel to our marine tilapia and barramundi projects
- We use probiotics to control organic matter accumulation at the bottom of our ponds
- We use probiotics to reduce Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) by increasing feed digestibility and absorption
In association with Taqnia Energy and King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST), we succeeded in applying the macro nanobubble technology to increase oxygen levels in intensive stocking systems.
- Sea cucumbers
After 10 years of thorough research on the Holothuria Scabra species of sea cucumbers found in the Red Sea, we now have the technology to develop and commercialize the project by launching a pilot operation to validate its economic viability.
We have successfully completed the setup and process standardization of the Chitosan plant which is capable of processing 6 tons of shrimp heads per day to produce 120 kg of high-quality Chitosan.
- Marine Agriculture
NAQUA is currently standardizing its Micro and Macro Algae production and developing its mass production technology.
